“Rasgulla khabe? Paani khabe? Cigarette bhi khabe?” No, you ‘Opordartho’, we, the Bengalis are more than ‘eating’ Rosogolla, water and cigarette alike. We are also possessive of the aloo in our biriyani. We gorge over mutton cutlet. But “Lyadh” is our favorite food. We boast of Maidan, Eden Gardens, College Street and Victoria with equal pride. Ask a Bengali what is so famous about Bengal, and he/she can spend an entire day talking about them. Oh, we love our adda and PNPC sessions, don’t we? They say that almost every Bengali can either sing, dance, recite, write, act or play a music instrument, which is actually true, isn’t it? We are born in the land of Rabindranath Tagore, Satyajit Ray, and many others. Art runs in our blood. Sometimes nostalgia hits us hard. We miss our childhood days, we miss the place where we were born and brought up. We miss our first love, and the times spent in the heart of the city with that person. Hence Calcutta Apologue and Voice-Verso brings to you a high dose of nostalgia for those Bengalis who carry Bengal in their heart, no matter in whichever part of the world they are. Take a stroll down your memory lane, relive your childhood, relive those good old days of Kolkata you've been missing ever since. This anthology features some of the brilliant compositions of some very talented young writers and photographers from the City of Joy. And alongside, you'll get to read the first short story from the series of detective stories "Rohossye Rudra" and few of conversation stories by Calcutta Apologue that are already popular in the internet.
